Justin Verlander dominant again as Houston Astros clinch AL West

Verlander is 3-0 with his new team since being traded by the Tigers. It appears Justin Verlander is feeling right at home in Houston. After two sterling road starts for his new team, Verlander made his Minute Maid Park debut Sunday and was dominant again, allowing just one run as the Astros clinched their first American League West title. In three starts with Houston, Verlander is 3-0 with a 0.89 ERA. Just dominant. So the Astros are headed to the playoffs, and Verlander should get the ball in Game 1 of the ALDS. After a red-hot start this season, Houston...

Rogers: Cubs' success has been a team effort

Justin Verlander helped his team clinch a division title on Sunday, celebrating about 1,100 miles away from Wrigley Field. He was pitching for the Astros, not the Cubs, of course. One of the reasons why he's pitching for Houston: Theo Epstein wouldn't send any members of his core group of young Major Leaguers to the Tigers as part of a package to get Verlander.

Anibal Sanchez K's 11 as Tigers rally to beat White Sox in 9th

The Tigers snapped a six-game losing streak and won for just the third time since trading Verlander and Justin Upton on Aug. 31. DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers got the first quality start and the first walk-off win of the post-Justinian era Friday night at Comerica Park. Starter Anibal Sanchez struck out a season-high 11 batters and Mikie Mahtook drove home the winning run with a single in the ninth as the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 win. The Tigers snapped a six-game losing streak and won for just the third time since trading Verlander and Justin Upton...

Detroit Tigers Mailbag: The rebuild might take longer than you think

Detroit Tigers Mailbag: The rebuild might take longer than you think

Don’t plan that 2020 World Series parade just yet. For all the excitement the Justin Verlander and Justin Upton trades provided at the end of August, the last two weeks have been a harsh reminder of how painful the rebuilding process can be. The Detroit Tigers are just 2-12 since those two trades, and have been outscored by a whopping 56 runs. They won’t be this bad going forward — Miguel Cabrera will improve and Michael Fulmer will be healty next year — but the baseball generally won’t be pleasant to watch. There will be prospect-y stuff to distract us during most of the baseball...

Tigers give up 17 runs on 25 hits in woeful start to final homestand of 2017

Tigers give up 17 runs on 25 hits in woeful start to final homestand of 2017

The Tigers have lost six in a row and dropped 12 of 14 games since trading Justin Verlander and Justin Upton on Aug. 31. Theyve been outscored 103-45 during that span. DETROIT -- The first game of the final homestand of the 2017 season offered little hope that a grim September would get any better. The Chicago White Sox had 25 hits -- including 21 singles -- to beat the Tigers 17-7 Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park. It was the third-most hits allowed by the Tigers in franchise history and the most since a memorably ugly game against the Royals in 2004. The...

Tigers vs. White Sox Preview: Let the draft pick position battle begin!

Tigers vs. White Sox Preview: Let the draft pick position battle begin!

The Tigers and White Sox are in a close fight for next year’s No. 3 pick in the MLB draft. Ever since the Tigers began their slow descent into madness the bottom of the American League standings earlier this summer, fans have been keeping a close eye on their relative position among other teams. Why? Because the worse their record gets in 2017, the better their position will be for the 2018 MLB draft. A few weeks ago, the Tigers were looking at a pick in the No. 6-8 range. Since then, the bottom has fallen out. The Tigers traded Justin Verlander and Justin Upton at the end of August, and...

Former Tigers watch: Justin Verlander dominates Justin Upton, Angels

Former Tigers watch: Justin Verlander dominates Justin Upton, Angels

A pair of former teammates squared off in Anaheim on Tuesday. With the Detroit Tigers struggling something fierce as we head down the stretch, we Tigers fans need something else to entertain ourselves. The minor league season is over and we don’t want to watch football, so we’re turning to the next best thing: other baseball. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be checking in on our old friends as they make a push towards the 2017 postseason (now with standings!). Houston Astros 1, Los Angeles Angels 0 (box) No longer an ace? Yeah, right. Justin Verlander was brilliant in his second start...

Playoff chase: Three more things for Twins fans to follow

Minnesota fans may have groaned when Houston fattened up by trading with Detroit for ace pitcher Justin Verlander. But he's in good position to aid the Twins.

Tigers vs. Indians Preview: Buck Farmer stands in the way of history

The Indians go for their 21st consecutive win on Wednesday afternoon against Farmer and the Tigers. Starting pitching can come from just about anywhere in the major leagues. Tigers fans are still mourning the loss of Justin Verlander, a former first round pick who reached the major leagues within a year of being drafted. Those same hapless Tigers were blanked on Tuesday by Corey Kluber, a fourth-rounder-turned-ace out of a small college in Florida. I don’t know that anyone is expecting Mike Clevinger to turn into Corey Kluber, but the parallels are obvious. Drafted out of a small Florida...

HumpLinks: Angels whimper in reverse

Angels surrendering ground in WC race, by failing to get off the ground against Justin Verlander. That went about as bad as I predicted, no? Verlander has been very good this year, historically strong against the Angels' best bats, and hot since moving over to Houston. Boom. The LAA announcing crew wanted to make a lot of hay about Verlander "struggling in Anaheim". Yeah, last night was only the 9th game here of his entire career. Worry more about the now, and not the small numbers of yesteryear, and you get the expected. Sure, you get a little help from the umpire, too, but he also got...

Detroit Tigers News: The Tigers got the best deal they could for Justin Verlander

Al Avila’s waiting paid off for the Tigers. Good Monday morning, friends. As the Detroit Tigers close out the season by continuing their march toward a better draft pick — thanks for doing your part, Anibal Sanchez — we can find some solace in the opportunity to watch the team take some tentative steps towards evaluating what the future might hold. Inside the Justin Verlander deal FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman broke down the decision processes that lead to both the Justin Verlander and Justin Upton deals. The takeaway here is that the Tigers may not have gotten as much as they wanted...
